Attack of the Blues...

The first card is for my aunt's birthday. Guess what? She has a gorgeous Westie, called Gemma.


Stamp: 'Bonnie Westies' from Little Claire. (Have only used four of the squares.)
Colouring medium: Prismacolor pencils + Zest-It blending solution + blending stumps
Sentiment: Computer-generated, glazed with Glossy Accents and raised on foam pads.
Ric-rac, spiral clip & mini brads from stash.

SAFE HARBOUR

This next card serves two purposes... I bumped into an old friend of mine on Saturday, a lady pastor who leads a small Christian fellowship near Ramsey in Cambridgeshire. She told me she will be having a stall for an eight week period in Ramsey's Summer Fair, and asked me to make some Christian-themed cards with scripture to sell on the stall. We agreed what prices she'd like to sell for, and this is the first... Made to a Trimcraft Sketch Challenge layout.

On the inside of the boat panel, I have used the following scripture from Psalm 18:2:

"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. "

Stamps: The yacht is an old PSX stamp, and the swirls are from the 'Elegant Flourishes' set by Rhonna Farrer. (Yacht image coloured with watercolour pencils, and decorated with silver glitter glue for the bow wave, and Glossy Accents to highlight the boat.)

Paper: Basic Grey Blitzen Collection, BLI-348 Polar Blue (but heavily sponged with shades of ink from a Kaleidocolor pad, Blue Breeze, which is also used for the flourish on the inside of the card)

Rub-ons: Making memories 'Heidi' alphabet

Gems, navy & embossed silver cardstock and brads from stash
